Car Loans From a Dealership

When car loan shopping, some say the best place to get auto financing is the certified dealership that you are buying your vehicle from. Below are some of the benefits to opting for an in-house loan at a Myrtle Beach dealer:

  • Dealerships work with a variety of lenders to get you the best rates possible.
  • Only fill out a single application form online to get multiple options.
  • Multiple lenders are competing for your business, which can lead to a better rate.
  • Some dealerships offer options for those who have bad credit or a low credit score.
  • The dealership may offer financing incentives.
  • You may be able to negotiate your down payment when financing with the dealership.

Car Loans From Your Bank

Your local bank is also a viable option for many drivers looking for an auto loan. Be sure to check with your dealership before applying at your bank is actually a good idea because each dealership has different financing partners. If you have a low credit score it may be harder to get approved for a bank loan, but there are benefits to choosing to finance at the bank:

  • You may have a pre-existing relationship with your bank
  • You might be able to benefit from set interest rates
  • You may be able to set a flexible payment schedule
